Juventus Snap Up Man United Target Kingsley Coman

Gunners miss out on young PSG ace.

Check in to Italy vs Uruguay

Serie A giants Juventus have beaten the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United to the signature of Paris Saint Germain starlet Kingsley Coman, according to the Daily Star.

The France under-21 star had been tipped for a bright future at the Parc des Princes where his performances had drawn comparisons to current Juve star Paul Pogba.

His performances last season also drew some significant interest from several Premier League sides Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United.

According to reports in France, both Arsenal and Manchester United were very keen to sign the midfielder and were planning summers bids for the 18-year-old.

However, the Italian champions have beaten their English counterparts to it by snapping him up on a free transfer.

Koman made his debut for the French champions two years ago at the tender age of 16, and since then he has been voted the club’s young player of the year for the last two seasons.

Despite only making a handful of appearances in his short career, he has already collected two Ligue 1 titles, a Trophée des champions and a Coupe de la Ligue under his belt.

Juventus could decide to put him straight into the first team, as they did with Pogba, who is now one of the world’s most sought after midfielders.
